UFO/UFC on Roosevelt

There is an intriguing looking take-out place on Roosevelt at around 72nd Street. Both times I walked by my baby was in the middle of a 'get me home quick mom' sort of tantrum (sick of my long treks to Aubergine from Jackson Heights, I imagine) and I didn't get to check it out. Anyone know what it is?

  1. I haven't tried it yet but it's a chicken place. It stands for, get ready, Unidentified Flying Chicken and has some sort of odd sci-fi look to it. It ain't the best joke but it catches your attention.

    1. OK, that sounds intriguing. Even though it is just chicken, I can't help feeling there will be more to it. Like Star Trek uniforms or something.

      1. Sadly the delivery bike I saw through the window is of the regular chipped paint variety -- they should have carried their dorky theme through and dressed the damn thing up in something silvery.

        1. I stopped in and ordered from here tonight. The owner was there and very friendly and helpful. It's Korean fried chicken, crispy and light, with a choice of various sauces. I had the soy-garlic and it was good, if anything next time I will ask for extra sauce on the side. They use high-quality chicken! I also enjoyed an order of fresh cut french fries, and the side order of Korean radishes in vinegar, which comes with. It's simple but good for delivery in this part of of town. He said they're planning on a dining room downstairs when they get their liquor license.

            I stopped by there last night and got a small order of chicken half soy-garlic and half hot. The owner said the hot was the specialty and I have to say I enjoyed it much more than the soy-garlic. The small order consisted of three drumsticks and maybe 6 or 7 wings. All in all it was a good meal.

            I must disagree on the delivery bike...the one I saw was all yellow and black...very chickeny looking.
